I can confirm to the Deputy that the school in question has submitted an application, to my Department, for capital funding under the 'Additional School Accommodation Scheme'.

The application is currently under assessment, as soon as this process has been completed my Department will be in direct contact with the school authority concerned.

The school has also applied for funding under the Emergency Works scheme. The applications in this respect have been refused as being outside the terms of the Scheme. However, I can inform the Deputy that projects of this type may be appropriate for delivery via the Summer Works Scheme. It is open to the school authority to apply for Summer Works funding which is currently open for applications.
